New Dining Room Open & Bar area Refurbishment

After five years of planning – our dream of having a beautiful new dining area is finally here.

We really hope you like it. Our seasonal homemade food from our brilliant Head Chef Steve and his team (in a huge sparkly new kitchen) will be available throughout the pub wherever you sit.

The difference will be that for the first time in 14 years you can now book a table for up to 12 people in the new dining room and know your table is there when you want it.
